ECIC records fall as rifle squad hands Lancaster year’s first loss

Clarence’s rifle team not only handed Lancaster its first loss of the season Thursday, but the Red Devils broke three ECIC records in the process.

Clarence’s team of four shooters upped the ECIC record for aggregate score to 1,151 points, led by Matt Kirk’s ECIC record 295 points that included an ECIC record perfect prone score of 100-10c. Alexis Kirk wasn’t far behind, firing a 292, while Trey Dziabo added a 288. Josh Pfennig rounded out the efforts with a 276.

“We’re a young team, with our top shooters against Lancaster a senior, a junior and two sophomores, but many of them are competing outside of school at national matches,” coach Bob Neubauer said. “They’ve been working hard to reach this point, and I am very proud of their work ethic and their successes.”

Clarence came into that match looking to do well after edging out Pioneer the previous afternoon by a 1,103-1,083 score. Matt Kirk led Clarence’s efforts once again with his 282, while Dziabo added a 275. Alexis Kirk chipped in with a 274 and Emily Gay a 272 for Clarence.

The Red Devils will return to competitive action Tuesday when they travel to Orchard Park.
